### NOTE ###
This app is NOT for editing the library of Apple's Photos.
Apple's Photos makes the metadata files "metaSchema.db", "Library.apdb" and so on in the Photos.photoslibrary > database while importing image files. Photos shows metadata written in the metaSchema.db, not show metadata embedded in the imported image files. Since Photo Meta Edit does edit metadata embedded in the image files, not edit the metaSchema.db, Apple's Photos does not show the changes. If you want Photos to show the changes, re-import image files to remake the metaSchema.db of Photos.
It would be better to edit before importing images for avoiding unexpected troubles in Photos. Photos never edit original imported image files. The data files in the Photos.photoslibrary should not be edited by 3rd party apps. It could make some troubles.
・Batch functions for Date-Time metadata improved
・Fixes an issue about displaying blue flags on Apple Map
・Added support for embedding thumbnails into JPEG files
